Bishop's Hatfield Girls' School
The Hatfield Girls’ Grammar School (as the school was originally named), opened in 1960 with an intake of 203 pupils and twelve teachers. The Headmistress was Miss M. Ashworth. In September 1976, the School was renamed Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School.
In 1984, Miss Ashworth retired and Mrs E. Diana Press was appointed Acting Headmistress. Dr M. McArdle was appointed Headmistress in 1986. Mrs Press became Headmistress after Dr McArdle.
In 1988, it was proposed to merge the school with Hatfield School. This was opposed by parents and was eventually rejected by the Secretary of State for Education.
By the year 2000, the school had grown to 710 pupils with 51 teachers and 26 support staff. The Headmistress was Mrs C.M. Brooks.
